Samba Server Installation and Configuration on CentOS 7

Samba Server Installation and Configuration on CentOS 7

This guide explains how to configure samba server on CentOS 7 with anonymous and secured samba servers. Samba is an Open Source/Free Software suite that provides seamless file and print services to SMB/CIFS clients. Samba is freely available, unlike other SMB/CIFS implementations, and allows for interoperability between Linux/Unix servers and Windows-based clients.

How to configure an NFS server and mount NFS shares on Ubuntu 14.04

How to configure an NFS server and mount NFS shares on Ubuntu 14.04

Network File System (NFS) is a popular distributed filesystem protocol that enables users to mount remote directories on their server. The system lets you leverage storage space in a different location and write onto the same space from multiple servers in an effortless manner. It, thus, works fairly well for directories that users need to access frequently. This tutorial explains the process of mounting NFS share on an Ubuntu 14.04 server in an simple and easy-to-follow steps.

High-Availability Storage With GlusterFS 3.2.x On Debian Wheezy - Automatic File Replication (Mirror) Across Two Storage Servers

High-Availability Storage With GlusterFS 3.2.x On Debian Wheezy - Automatic File Replication (Mirror) Across Two Storage Servers

This tutorial shows how to set up a high-availability storage with two storage servers (Debian Wheezy) that use GlusterFS. Each storage server will be a mirror of the other storage server, and files will be replicated automatically across both storage servers. The client system (Debian Wheezy as well) will be able to access the storage as if it was a local filesystem. GlusterFS is a clustered file-system capable of scaling to several peta-bytes. It aggregates various storage bricks over Infiniband RDMA or TCP/IP interconnect into one large parallel network file system. Storage bricks can be made of any commodity hardware such as x86_64 servers with SATA-II RAID and Infiniband HBA.

Creating An NFS-Like Standalone Storage Server With GlusterFS 3.2.x On Debian Wheezy

Creating An NFS-Like Standalone Storage Server With GlusterFS 3.2.x On Debian Wheezy

This tutorial shows how to set up a standalone storage server on Debian Wheezy. Instead of NFS, I will use GlusterFS here. The client system will be able to access the storage as if it was a local filesystem. GlusterFS is a clustered file-system capable of scaling to several peta-bytes. It aggregates various storage bricks over Infiniband RDMA or TCP/IP interconnect into one large parallel network file system. Storage bricks can be made of any commodity hardware such as x86_64 servers with SATA-II RAID and Infiniband HBA.

Fedora 19 Samba Standalone Server With tdbsam Backend

Fedora 19 Samba Standalone Server With tdbsam Backend

This tutorial explains the installation of a Samba fileserver on Fedora 19 and how to configure it to share files over the SMB protocol as well as how to add users. Samba is configured as a standalone server, not as a domain controller. In the resulting setup, every user has his own home directory accessible via the SMB protocol and all users have a shared directory with read-/write access.

How To Create A Fiber Channel SAN Using SCST With QLogic HBA On Linux Debian 6

How To Create A Fiber Channel SAN Using SCST With QLogic HBA On Linux Debian 6

I created this how-to as none of the other instructions on the internet work correctly. This is done specifically  for Ubuntu and Debian and is based on the 2.6.32 although with some common sense this should work with any distro and any kernel.

How To Add WiKID Two-Factor Authentication To OpenVPN Community On Ubuntu 13.04

How To Add WiKID Two-Factor Authentication To OpenVPN Community On Ubuntu 13.04

These instructions describe setting up two-factor authentication with WiKID Strong Authentication, which is a commercial/open source two-factor authentication system and OpenVPN, an SSL-encrypted VPN, on an Ubuntu 13.04 Linux server using the Radius Pluggable Authentication Module. First, we will configure PAM to use Radius, then we will configure OpenVPN to use PAM and one-time passwords, then we will create a network client on the WiKID server for OpenVPN. We won't go into specifics about installing these services, rather we will focus on configuring them to all work together.

Encrypt Your Data With EncFS (OpenSUSE 12.3)

Encrypt Your Data With EncFS (OpenSUSE 12.3)

EncFS provides an encrypted filesystem in user-space. It runs without any special permissions and uses the FUSE library and Linux kernel module to provide the filesystem interface. It is a pass-through filesystem, not an encrypted block device, which means it is created on top of an existing filesystem. This tutorial shows how you can use EncFS on OpenSUSE 12.3 to encrypt your data.
